The Bird

Have been kind of busy here with deer season going on, but was able to smoke a turkey yesterday for Thanksgiving dinner.

Spatchcocked the turkey, brined in a simple water, brown sugar, kosher salt brine overnight, slathered in butter (with butter under the skin) seasoned with pepper and smoked in the BPS drum with a small bit of hickory at 325F til done.

It was kinda tasty.... at least no one complained. :)

Still hunting here, no deer hanging yet but I hope that will change soon. 
Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday!

Looks good, hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Oh, I need to remember brown sugar next year.
We brined our turkey this year, but I only used kosher salt and water.

Your turkey looks great! We fried ours and it turned out pretty good, too.

Good luck with the hunt. Hope it's a safe one and you get your deer!

I smoked a turkey and ham this year for Thanksgiving. It freaked my mom out a bit for not having a traditional cooked turkey but she loved it so I think I may have converted her ;)

cowgirl said...

That sounds tasty LB! I bet you have converted her. :)
Hope you had a great TDay. Thanks for stopping by!
